EB-1: 1 year in 3 years preceding the petition

Question details

I have been with the same company for 4 years as a manager (overall industry experience 11 years today). I joined the company in India, stayed there for 1.5 years, moved to US 2.5 years back. I read that "1 year employment outside the USA should be in the 3 years preceding the petition". All of my 12 months does not fall into the last 3 years. What are my chances of qualifying for EB-1?


There may be an exemption if you continued working with a related company ever since you came to USA.
